Hi! I have noticed that slide 8 has an error – 43 722 (forty three thousand, one hundred and thirty two)…. meant to be 43 722 (forty three thousand, SEVEN hundred and TWENTY two).

Hi there Jess, thank you so much for taking the time to bring this error to our attention. The resource has now been corrected and the new version is available for download. Have a wonderful day!

But there is another mistake with the place values. In the yellow writing underneath the table, 2 x 10 should say 2 x 1.

Trent Jackaman · Feb 11th, 2020

Trent, you are quite right! Thank you for this pick up. We appreciate you contacting us. I have updated the resource in light of this error.

Adding zeros to the end of numbers confuses students when they get to year 5 as they cannot simply add a zero to 4.5. teaching the actual place value is far more important

Hi Rachelle,
Thanks for your feedback. I will pass this onto our resource creators and we will re-evaluate the methods discussed in the presentation.
If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
